    I have a 6x4 john deere gator that has a loud rattle in the clutch area - transmission end. It now has a vibration that increases with rpm. What is the problem?

    me too, ordered a driven clutch, and keeping my fingers crossed it's not the transmission,
    spring on the driven clutch it loose when it's stopped, doesn't seem normal.

    Sounds like you both need the Deere tech manual, shoot me your email and I'll send you both a PDF of it

    Had a similar problem on my 6x4 gator--sounded like piston rattle. thought it was a secondary clutch, but finally figured out it was the drive chains slapping because they were loose. Tightened up and greased and now quiet. sounded like a big bucks problem, but fixed with a little wrenching.
